Hebrew* Culture
(* denotes a culture rather than a country.)

Background: Hebrew is any member of an ancient northern Semitic people that were the ancestors of the Jews. Historians use the term Hebrews to designate the descendants of the patriarchs of the Old Testament, i.e., Abraham, Isaac, and so on. After their conquest of Canaan (Palestine) in the late 2nd millennium BC these people are referred to as Israelites until their return from the Babylonian Exile in the late 6th century BC, from which time on they became known as Jews.
